Structure of arthropod hemocyanin

Hemocyanins are large multi-subunit copper proteins that transport oxygen in many arthropods and mollusts. The amino acid sequence of subunit a of Panulirus interruptus hemocyanin (657 residues) has been completed and fitted to the electron-density map (3.2 A resolution). Comparison of amino acid sequence data for several different hemocyanin subunits of… CONTINUE READING
